Description Edit | History

This guild is for players interested in participating in an online league of Dreadball using VASSAL to play out the matches.

Dreadball VASSAL Module can be found here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/26498/dreadball-vassal-module

Overall League Rules.

1) The league will be 6 games long followed by a playoff season for the top 4 teams.

2) The schedule will be setup at the start of the league and each team will have 3 home and 3 away games.

3) During the regular season, each cycle will be 12 days long preceded by 2 days to bid on MVPs.

4) During that 12 days, players must play their league game.

5) In addition to their one league game, players may play as many exhibition matches as they can arrange.

6) Each cycle will start on a Tuesday. So Tuesday and Wednesday, bid on MVPs, then 12 days to play matches. This gives each cycle 2 weekends, which generally helps with any scheduling woos.

7) All matches (league and exhibition) times must be announced on the guild forums with at least 1 hour notice.

8) All matches must be played via VASSAL and allow observers. (It is a sporting event and half the fun is watching future opponents play each other.)

9) All results must be announce on the guild forums. The home team announces the results and the visiting team gives it a thumb's up to endorse it.

10) Season 3 rules will be used. So Hyper-velocity launchers, new fouls, etc... will be used.

11) All rosters will be posted to the forums. As the roster changes, the player will edit their forum post.

12) MVP's and freelancers will not be used during the playoffs.

13) The playoffs will run on a 1 week cycle and game times need to be announced 24 hours in advance.

14) When signing up for the league, each player geek-mails the chair the names of 3 MVPs. MVPs with at least 2 nominations will be used.

More Information Edit | History

Threads

Each League will have several predefined threads. Please do not post in-appropriate material in the threads. The more that we keep them on topic, the easier it will be for everyone.

Each League will have a Number. The first League will start at 1000. All Threads for the League will be Prefaced with L1000.

The threads are:

  1. Rosters. All Roster are posted here.
  2. Match Results. All Match Results are posted here.
  3. Schedule. All Match announcements go here. The first post will be the overall league schedule of official matches.
  4. Looking for Game. Discuss and arrange Friendlies/Exhibition games in this thread (and post the times in the Schedule thread)
  5. Press Releases. A "Role Play" thread for teams that want to release "News" about their teams.
  6. Chat. Everything else and should be the main thread for the league.

Match Procedure

  1. Discuss with opponent the time and date of the match. If at all possible, use GMT time as folks live in different time zones.
  2. Post in the Guild when the match will take place. Please post with as much lead time as possible, so that other folks have a chance to watch.
  3. Play the game.
  4. Once the game is complete "talk" through the post-game steps and handle all dice rolling through VASSAL.
  5. The Home Team posts the Match Report (See below for format) in the appropriate thread.
  6. The Visiting Team then Thumbs Up the post to certify it.
  7. The Chair will Thumb Up the post to record it. Once the post has been Thumbed Up by the Chair, it is the official results and they can not be changed.
  8. Each team should update their roster with any changes right away.

Reporting formats
